My online coaching program is aimed specifically at nutrition and lifestyle coaching.
After filling out the assessment form, there will be an initial consultation via Zoom with a written follow up summarising what we discussed on the consultation and a written plan for you to put into action as a starting point.
You even get a series of exclusive videos that introduce you to the evidence-based basics of diet, nutrition and mindset.
From there onwards we stay in touch via phone/zoom/WhatsApp with a weekly 20-minute check in where you get to ask me any questions and update me on your progress so far. I will be available for instant messaging at designated times throughout the week and there is the option of being added to a TM Fitness community on WhatsApp and Facebook.
The focus here is on behaviour change, education and helping you to break down all your barriers to change.
Bespoke gym training plans can be provided when required, so we cover all the bases.
This program is especially useful for clients with specific body composition or sports/performance goals.
The whole aim of this is to teach you so much that eventually you are your own coach and no longer need my services. Unless you enjoy the banter that much.
Call or email to discuss your personal needs and targets:
If, like a lot of my clients, you are an active person and you partake in sports that involve running then the chances are you have experienced a Hamstring injury of some kind at some point. It might be a spasm, a minor strain or a grade 3 tear. Hamstring injuries are pretty devastating for running sports so what can you do to reduce your risk of experiencing one? This blog will set out to look at some of the evidence available regarding stretching and foam rolling and asks whether they are effective. Then we take a look at some of the evidence on strength training and finally, give an evidence-based strategy for reducing your chances of getting a Hamstring injury so that you can get the most out of your sporting activities.
Being evidence-based is important, it means that you can be confident that the advice you give is based on facts, not opinions or, worse still, feelings. For example, any fitness or nutrition ‘expert’ who claims that weight loss occurs only when you control for insulin secretion is wrong. I can say that with 100% confidence because there is enough compelling evidence that shows that simply is not the case and that insulin-obesity hypothesis has NEVER been proven by science (1, 2, 3). Of course, the evidence doesn’t necessarily tell the whole story, but it can certainly show us when something is just plain wrong.
We hear all the time about the importance of exercise in a healthy lifestyle. But there are so many different exercises and so many training styles how do you know what the best exercises are? This will be informed by a number of factors; your health history, your activity levels, your weight, your personal interests, your sport, your age, etc. Here I intend to give you a convincing argument for three exercises (and variations) that EVERYONE should include in their healthy lifestyle regardless of goal. But before I give you the exercises, let me establish some context.
